is a large and pleasant village, though
situated in a flat country; the church is
spacious, with a lofty tower. In this
place William of Hatfield, second son
of Edward III., was born. The exten-
sive level of Hatfield Chace contains
180,000 acres, half of which were for-
merly covered with water; it was sold
by Charles I. to Cornelius Vermuiden,
a naturalized Dutchman, to drain and
cultivate, which, to the general sur-
prise, he at length effected, at an ex-
pense of 400,0001., but the project in-
volved him in tedious and ruinous law
suits. In the centre of the Chace stands
a farm-house, called Lindhohn, sur-
rounded by an almost impassable mo-
rass ; on the site was anciently a her-
mitage, inhabited by William of Lind-
holme, a personage partaking of the
contradictory natures of a hermit and
a giant, and concerning whom strange
traditionary stories are yet extant in the
neighbourhood; his remains were dis-
covered in 1747. Edwin, the first
Christian king of Northumberland, was
slain here, in a great battle, by Penda,
the turbulent king of Mercia. In this
